The Friars Rest is a lovely hotel. It has modern bedding, curtains and a strong shower. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were all very helpful. There is parking outside using a permit from the owners. The hotel is close to the river Ouse and 10minutes walk to York castle and the shops. I would recommend the Friars Rest to my friends and will visit again
Took my 5-year-old son to meet up with a good friend visiting York from overseas, so booked two rooms. Extremely clean and well maintained rooms and halls. Old-fashioned and basic without the old-fashioned inconvenience. Shower rooms seemed new, or at least extremely well maintained. Beds very comfortable and great fluffy clean duvets and sheets. My friend, who used to run pub B&Bs in the 1980s-1990, was very favourably impressed.
The staff were helpful and were friendly to my son. And on-site restaurant had good-quality Italian food -- another pleasant surprise.
